It probably did win, but Titans was decided before the fan vote
They have a Titanium Bar at Surfers, not sure why there could’nt be a pop-up bar or something similar using shipping containers close to the paddocks on game day. They push public transport as the preferred option so drink/driving shouldn’t be an issue leaving the stadium
Mid to high 30K’s. Warriors games at Suncorp are easily 50:50 crowd support. Add in it’s a Sunday arvo which Brisbane locals have been denied
Years of Qld fans bagging Sydney for origin crowds, despite the fact, during the run of 11/12 series losses, our lowest crowd has been 62,000 (I.e. 10k more than capacity at Lang Park).
Now they bloody lose one series and according to El Presidente, they’re only going to have 45k turn up.
NSW. Spiritual Home Of Origin
QLD has lost the plot with ticket prices.
If you read it REALLY carefully, youll notice that i never said "Gold Coast Cowboys"....
"South Queensland Cowboys" or maybe "Gold Coast-Logan Cowboys". Clearly the team would need to play mostly out of the GC but give the club some branding for a wider area and a more working-class feel than the f*cking glitter strip.
And, as i said earlier, it is an immediate "f*ck you" to the Broncos to get some actual emotion into the rivalry.
LOL, you know f**k all about Canberra!
To give you a better idea, in summer Canberra is hotter on average then Sydney...
Look it up if you don't believe me.
lived there 3 years sport, I know only too well the dry heat of a Canberra summer. Not really relevant to the joke I was making about winter sports team being called the Heat when the morning temps are frequently in the minus and there is snow on the brindabellas. But thanks for trying
Gold Coast Warthogs
Canberra Glass Barbecues
Dunno, might get buried a bit by origin week.
Not the kiwi contingent. If so Suncorp will be a pro-Warriors crowd
You implied something abjectly false, laugh it off and try to rationalise it all you want but at the end of the day it was just a dumb thing to do...
I've been "stung 'on the GC by a jewellery retailer.
We have blue ringed octopus at Cronulla,white pointers sunning themselves on the beaches, and a sewer treatment works near Kurnell.Oh and Gus Gould used to or still does live in the Shire.
And you think we "ain't" got problems.
Give me a Thai cave system anyday,a lot safer
The average high of Canberra during summer is slightly hotter than Sydney but Sydney has higher daily means and average lows which means on a 24/7 basis over summer it is hotter than Canberra.
That is only considering Sydney CBD as well, Western Sydney is hotter than Canberra in terms of average highs whilst still maintaining higher daily means and average lows.
So no, Canberra is not hotter than Sydney.
Don't think origin three tickets should be released until after the second game. The pricing is incredibly cooked for a dead rubber. Could have easily held off selling these until the result of game II is known, then flog them for half the price of a regular origin game
What a great life you must lead. A model for us all
$300 to sit in the top of bay 601.
merkins are seriously kidding themselves.
Well we always used to be told that Origin in Brisbane sells out in half an hour because of how passionate QLD supporters are. Prices are ridiculous, but hopefully QLD supporters will shut the f**k up now about crowds.
Prices for all games, especially big games, have gone too far. In the last year we have struggled to sell out a Grand Final, a World Cup Final and Origin.
Per capita we win tho
We also have more expensive tickets and less cheaper seats.
For example, restricted view were $180 a pop till this morning, reduced to $70. In sydney for game two, ON A SUNDAY, they were $35.
Also, a third of the seats get reserved for maroon members, which are basically 30% more expensive but you get a scarf and beanie.
Back in the day, when correctly priced, suncorp would sell out in 40minutes, a family of four on level 5 behind the posts, almost $1k, no deal.
Rain here will also stop walk ups.
